Why do owner operators need commercial insurance?

Owner operator truck insurance can cover lawsuits over property damage and injuries. Most states have requirements for auto liability coverage, which can protect you from the high costs of an auto accident. Client contracts might also have insurance requirements for motor carriers and shippers.
